Lee hit "15 or 20" balls off a tee on Monday as he recovers from inflammation in his right wrist. The 2005 NL batting champion has been on the 15-day disabled list since July 24. "You've got to start somewhere," said Cubs manager Dusty Baker. "All I know is those hand injuries are tough. It takes a while to come back."
Lee will be allowed to start baseball-related activities on Monday after undergoing tests on his left wrist. The Cubs first baseman has only played 34 games this season due to the wrist injury. "The inflammation and soreness have been resolved," Cubs trainer Mark O'Neal said. "It looks good."
Lee is capable of doing everything except baseball stuff as he continues his rehabilitation on his right wrist for the Cubs. An MRI on Monday showed the wrist is normal. "We're not going to do anything baseball-wise until he feels 100 percent," Cubs athletic trainer Mark O'Neal said. "Like (general manager Jim Hendry) said the other day, we're not shutting him down. We want to know where we are with him when the season's over..."
The Cubs put Lee on the 15-day disabled list Monday because of continued problems with his right wrist, which he injured earlier this season in a collision that forced him to miss nearly 60 games. Lee broke his wrist when he collided with the Dodgers' Rafael Furcal on April 19. Lee missed the next 59 games while recovering from the injury and returned to the Cubs' lineup on June 25. He returned to the disabled list Monday with post-traumatic inflammation, the Cubs said.

Lee was scheduled to return Monday, but injuries to Tony Womack and Freddy Bynum forced him back sooner.

For the first time since he went on the DL on April 21 with a broken right wrist, Lee took batting practice on the field before the Cubs-Indians game on Tuesday. The Chicago offense has missed the presence of the power-hitting first baseman and batting practice is a big step in his return.
Lee is targeting a return to the Cubs lineup in the next two weeks, as he tries to come back from a broken wrist suffered on April 19 when he collided with the Los Angeles Dodgers' Rafael Furcal. The first baseman is hoping to avoid a rehabillitation stint.
